Gerrard - The heat is on
Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard admits the club's winless start to the season has increased the pressure on the players.
The Reds have taken just two points from their opening five Barclays Premier League matches, which have included home games against champions Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal.
They now have fixtures against Norwich, tomorrow, Stoke and Reading (both at home) which, ordinarily, they would be expected to take at least seven points from.
However, Gerrard believes their current low points tally means away draws at places like Carrow Road are no longer acceptable.
"We have a run of games coming up now where there are points we should be taking but the longer it (not winning) goes on the more difficult it is going to get so it is important against Norwich we take maximum points," said the 32-year-old.
"If you look at the performances against City and United we should have six [more] points so it is not a case of 'they're out the way now, let's go beat the sides we should beat'."
